Membership Renewal

Renewal date: September 1st each year.
Membership fee is £18 per member, or £14.00 for Associate Member who have paid the full membership fee at another U3A.

PLEASE NOTE, If you have missed the renewal date or have previously been a member some time ago, please do not complete a new form but contact the Membership Secretary in the first instance.

If Your Details have Changed …

If any of your personal details (email, telephone number or address) have changed recently you must update them online before making your payment by clicking here. Failing that contact the Membership Secretary.

If you wish to update your preferences for Gift Aid, The Newsletter, Bulletin, and/or Third Age Matters Magazine please visit the Membership Preferences page before making your payment.

If your Membership type is changing between Joint and Individual, or Full and Associate, please contact the Membership Secretary and only make your payment once we have confirmed the change.

Standing Order

We do not accept any new Standing Orders as these have caused members many problems in the past. This is because, unlike direct debits, we cannot modify or stop a standing order.
If you do not pay the full amount due then your membership will not be renewed and the payment will be treated as a donation.


We no longer accept cheques. If you have difficulty paying by one of the above methods please contact the Membership Team.

Third Age Matters Magazine

Through our affiliation to the Third Age Trust, the ‘Third Age Matters’ magazine is sent out 5 times a year to all members who have requested it. We know that many members enjoy reading the magazine, but others send it rapidly towards the recycling bin. While we hope you will maximise the benefits you gain from membership, we don’t want to waste either money or paper unnecessarily. If you would like to either add or remove your name to the ‘Third Age Matters’ subscription list please visit the Member’s Preferences page.

On behalf of the Committee we hope you are enjoying your membership of Chichester U3A and that you will continue to support our groups, activities and events. We are always looking for more volunteers to help organise new groups and events.

If you have any queries please contact the Membership Team.
